Tag: distractions from writing

A couple more words and a fair few distractions.



Since last time I’ve managed to get another 500 words written for my short story. I’ve laid out the story using 500 words for the two main characters. First is from the man’s point of view, second from woman’s point of view and so on. The last 500 I have broken up into 250 word chunks for each character as they are about to meet. I’m thinking of changing the view point from first person to third for the final part of it. Though I’m not entirely sure it will work but I’m going to try it. In my head it will works wonders but usually that thought jumps right out of my brain once it’s been written. Fingers crossed and all that.

As for the distractions, having moved out of the flat I shared with my friend all we now have to do is get the deposit back. But will it be, again like it is in my head, all plain sailing? Of course not! This is life! How can something so simple be that way? The estate agents have contacted us and have played a very strange game in order to get as much of OUR deposit into THEIR pockets. My friend has unfortunately had plenty of experience with this kind of thing. He knows what to do but it is all a bit distracting. I was hoping to get the deposit back so I could book my yearly holiday. Hopefully it will all be sorted soon.

And then to my day job. I’m currently loaned over to a team whose department is expanding and will be offering permanent positions doing what I’m doing now. I should be able to apply on Monday so I’ve been getting my CV in order. Which has taken time as I keep going over and over it. More distractions but if all goes the way I’d like it to, I’ll have a new job and lots to look forward to.

All this has stopped me from writing as much as I’d like to so I’m going to use the next week to make up for it. I’ll let you know how it goes.

To sign off, The Picture of Dorian Gray is still going strong. I’d recommend it already without even being half way through it.

Right, I’m going. Bye Bye
